Job Title: Sales Executive
Location: Manchester
Salary: £25,000. OTE £40,000

A Fortune 500 company with multi-national capabilities, CDW was founded in 1984 and employs more than 8,900.

CDW are looking to hire graduates in Manchester to help continue their success in the UK. The successful candidates will be managed and trained by likeminded colleagues, whilst being afforded the independence to bring their own approach and personality to the sales cycle. In addition structured Sales and IT training will be provided over the first 15 months, culminating in a professional qualification.

CDW builds IT solutions for a broad range of companies in varying sectors, encompassing business, healthcare, education and government. As an entry level Sales Executive you will manage a mini-business within the business itself, owning the whole sales cycle from initial contact, running face to face meetings, negotiating with suppliers and ultimately closing and managing accounts. From the very start you will absorb all of the necessary traits to progress. By taking ownership for the sales you close, you will ensure that they continue to prosper. Whether conducting meetings face to face, winning new business, re-kindling dormant account relationships or providing client demonstrations, you will be a vital part of a business with a massive £650 million UK turnover.

Pareto have placed more than 40 graduates with CDW since 2012, which has helped to consolidate an atmosphere of drive and dynamism. International travel, an early Friday finish, incentives and a vibrant social scene are amongst the valuable perks that CDW offer - with some of these on hold until restrictions have been lifted, of course.
